First music purchase?

February 21, 2012

I remember the first cassette player I ever owned.  It was a small cassette player that could play the radio and could play cassettes. There was only one speaker but I was so proud of it.

I remember going to the mall so I could purchase my first cassette album to play on it. I searched through the store to find that one cassette.  I only had enough money to pay for one album so it had to be the right one.

I ended up choosing Tears for Fears, "Songs from the Big Chair." I still love to listen to that album today (on iPod now).

I think we are all attached to the album that was our first ine. When you have to use your own money, it makes it that much more important.  I mentioned this post in the office and everyone here started talking about their first album they owned. 

Just to embarass my brother, I remember the first album he owned was an Olivia Newton-John album.

@Jim Thompson: said his first album was the Monkees. I'm shocked they had recording equipment when he was a kid. Smile

What was the first album you owned?

Was it cassette, CD, vinyl, or possibly even 8-track?

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.
